Soubi watched as Ritsuka breathed steadily. In and out. In and out. There was no sound coming through the open window. Not traffic, not people. Everything was still.

Soubi tentatively reached a hand forwards, lightly pinching the end of one of those silk ears on top of the boy's head.

Soubi smiled again, light.
